HE HAD THE DEAD VtOOD ON HER.
Tlie other day a man and woman
came to a halt on Grand River street,
and the woman dropped the basket
she was carrying and called out: "I
will ! I will ! I'll not live with you
another day I" ''You'll leave me
will you ?" he calmly asked. "Yes;
I will." "When ?" "Now right
off this minute 1" "You'll go away?"
"Yes, sir." "I wouldn't if I were
you." "But I will, and I defy yon
to prevent me. I havo suffered at
your hands as long as I can put up
with it." "Oh, I shan't try to stop
you," he quietly replied. "I'll simp
ly report to the police that my wife
lias mysteriously disappeared. They
will want your description, and I
shall jjive it. You wear No. 7 shoes;
you have an extra large mouth; yon
walk stiff in your knees; your nose
turns up at the end; hair the color of
a brick terra coota, the newest in the
fashion; eyes rather on the squint;
voice partakes of " "Wretch,
you wouldn't dare to do that !" she
screamed. "I certainly will, and the
description will go into all the pa
pers." They glared at each other
for a minute like cats. Then he
walked on. She looked up and down
the street, gritted her teeth together,
and then picked up her basket and
followed on after him. He had what
they called the dead wood on her.

THE TOSEMITE FALLS.
The New York Times copies from
the Cornhill Magazine the following
description of Yosemite Falls: The
width of the stream at the summit is
about 2G to 30 feet, but at the base
of the upper fall it has expanded to a
width of fully 300 feet; and, as the
wind carries it to one side or the
other it plays over a Sace of about a
thousand feet in width of a precipi
tous rock face, 1,600 feet in depth.
This is the height of the upper fall.
As seen from below, the Yosemite,
though divided into three distinct
falls, apparently all on one plane. It
is only when you reach some point
from which you see it sideways that
you realize that the great upper fall
lies fully a quarter oi :t mile further
back than the middle and lower falls,
and that it rushes down this space in
boiling cascades till it reaches a per
pendicular rock, over which it leaps
about 600 feet, and then gives a
third and final plunge of about 500,
making up a total of a little under
2,700 Now, if you can realize that
the height ofNiagara is 162, you will
perceive that if some potent magician
could bring it into the valley it
would be effectually concealed by
trees of fully its own hight, many far
overtopping it. Niagara, of course,
makes up in width what she lack? in
hight. The Horse-shoe or Canadian
Fall is about 150 feet. The width
is 2,100 feet. The American Fa'.l is
about 160 feet in height and 1,100 in
in width. The total width, inclusive
of Goat Island, is 4,200 feet.
PHILADELPHIA'S LADY IMU.LION AIRES.
Philadelphia has a good list of
lady millionaires. Mrs. Thomas A.
Scott leads off, with at least 110,000,
000. Mrs. Bloomfield H. Moore is
near the top of tha ladder. Her hus
band's personal estate was valued at
$5,500,000, and this, besides his other
investments, leaves the lady in pos
session of an immense income. Mrs.
Anna W. Baird and Mrs. Matthew
Baldwin, 'both of whose husbands
were in the celebrated Baldwin Lo
comotive Works, are worth 82,000,
000 each. Mrs. Adolphe K. Borie is
ajmillionare in her own right. When
the late George Fales died, his per
sonal estate was worth over $2,000,
000, and his wife and daughter di
vided this as well as his other posses
sions. Two daughters of Henry
Rawle were left a million each by
their mother, which is a good start
for young ladies, and is likely to
draw attention to them. Ono of the
lady attendants at the Church of the
Epiphany drives to the house of
worship in a modest carriage. Her
income $260,000 a year. If men
make the money and women do
spend it, a list of the various chari
ties about the city shows that the
ladies know where to pnt it so that
it will do some good to others. Isn't
that so? Philadelphia Record,
THE SWEET PEA.
(American Florist and Farmer.)
There is no annual flower more
completely satisfactory for the farm
garden than the sweet pea. Its prom
inent growth, its constant renewal of
abundant bloom up to the time of
severe frost, the variety and bright
ness and harmony of colors, the
sweet perfume and the long, firm
stem, so convenient for nosegay mak
ing, give this fine old flower a first
ank. It 'grows six or seven feet
high, and ia equally handsome in
pyramid or cone form as a single
clump, or in a row as a hedge or
screen, for which it is specially adapt
ed. It requires support, like other
tall peas, and some of the stakes
should reach to its full hight. The
seed germinates more slowly and
should be planted either in the fall
or very early in the spring, and rath
er deep. The only other special care
required is to use the flower freely so
that little or no seed may form to
exhaust the plants, and to water
copiously once a we?k. if drought
occurs. Clean culture by hoeing or
mulching is a requirement.
OUR EDITOR'S DREAM.
New York World.
He fell asleep after a time, and lol
he dreamed again. And it seemed
to him in a vision that having armed
himself with certain papers and books
he once more turned his steps toward
the palace and knocked at the gate.
"Hello, is that yon again ?" said
Peter. "What do yon wish ?"
''Let those persons again come
forth," replied the editor, and this
time Peter made them all come
through the gate and stand outside.
They came as before and uttered
the same cries as before.
"Why did yon not notica that big
egg T sent you ?" yelled the first.
"It was rotten," replied the editor.
"Why didn't you write up my
soda-fountain," cried the druggist.
"You had your tickets printed at
the other office," calmly responded
the local man.
"Why did you write about old
Tomlinson's hens and never speak of
my new gate ?" shouted the third.
"Old Tomlinson paid for his ad
vertisement and you did not. Here's
the bill," said the editor.
"Why did you spell my name
wrong in the programme?" groaned
the local talent.
"Take a look at this manuscript of
yours and see For yourself,'' said the
editor with a grim smile.
The rest of the company yelled
their complaints in unison, and the
editor calmly sorted out a series ol
bills for unpaid subscriptions and
presented each with one; and it was
so that when they received them
they all tore their hair and rushed
violently down a steep place into the
sea, and St. Peter taking the editot
by the hand , led him within the gate
The use of oat meal, says the
American Cultivator, is largely on
the increase in our large cities and
towns, yet it is not bo extensively
consumed in this country as in many
of the European countries. The
grain is very rich in gluten and fat,
and contains a good quantity of
starch and sngar, being everywhere
recognized as a valuable food. It
cannot be leavened into bread, but it
makes good cakes. In Scotland the
finer variety of oat meal is baked
thin, but the coarser kind Ss made
into thick cakes called bannocks. In
Norway the common food of the
peasantry is a thin cake, called "fiad
brod," which is made of ground oats,
husk and all, mixed with potatoes,
and baked on a griddle or frying pan.
A palatable dish is made in parts of
Scotland by toasting oat meal before
a bright fire, then mixing it with a
little beef or mutton fat, and after
seasoning it with pepper, salt and
onions chopped small, again toasting
it. The common method of cooking
it, however, in Scotland, is by stir
ring it with boiling water until it has
the consistency of hasty pudding,
and in this manner Scotch brose is
made; but, if more diluted and boiled
for a long time, it makes porridge.
In Ireland it is mixed with Indian
meal, and then stirred into boiling
I water, thus making the mixture
I called "stir about." - Whey and milk
are often used instead of water, and
the mixture should be well boiled,
otherwise it is apt to produce flatu
lence. The decorticated grain con
stitutes grits or groats, and when
these are crushed or bruised they go
in England by the name of Emden
groats, commonly used in the form
PRIVATE CROP REPORT FOR THE WEEK
ENDING MAY 28.
Chicago, May 29th, 1883.
The month of May is closing just
about as it opened. The same ccld
and backward weather, with unpre
cedented storms of rain, wind and
snow the marked features of the
month. As yet we have not enjoyed
a week of warm, growing weather
sinco the opening of spring.
As the season advances we have
almost a repetition of the spring of
1881. South of the Ohio River the
greater portion of May has been cold
and dry. Rains have fallen recently
which have added greatly to the im
provement of crops in that region.
From California, with abundant and
additional rains up to date, (May 18),
the wheat outlook has improved, and
the majority of our correspondents
from that State seem to think they
will have from eight hundred thous
and to one million tons for export.
The rainfall for the season in this
State overreaches 1882 by two in
ches, with corresponding benefits.
The Marklane Express of May 2 1st
says: "It is now certain that the
wheat crop will not amount to an
Up to this date there are no facts
connected with the growing crop of
1883 upon which we are able as yet
to make any definite statements as to
the outcome in the future.
We therefore prefer to siate what
has been rathei than what will be.
In our Private Crop Report of May
10 we stated "that Nebraska and
Kansas were about done with plant
ing their corn." So far as the former
State is concerned this has proved to
be of little if any use. For the last
ten days the weather in Nebraska
has been unusually cold and wet; so
much so that the cases are exception
al where replanting has not been general.-
"Various causes are assigned
for a poor stand of the first planting.
Kansas has her corn now all up, and
in many cases it has been worked
once. So far in the State of Mis
souri we have many complaints of
poor stand of corn resulting from
imperfect seed, cold and wet weather.
As soon as we cross the Misissippi
River and zst into Illinois and Iowa,
the two great cop' producing States
of the Union, the outlook is even
more discouraging. Southern Illinois
makes the best bIiow as to stand of
corn, in JNortliern and Central Ill
inois very little corn, up to this date,
been planted, and at the very time
when the most of the corn ought to
have gone into the ground, every
thing was at a standstill owing tr.
cold and wet weather and the im
possibility of planting under these
conditions. Iowa was a little farther
advanced with her general work and
planting than Illinois; but as the
same bad weather prevailed in this
State as in Illinois nearly all the corn
which had been planted before the
15th inst. had to be replanted.
Ohio makes a poor showing, and
Indiana a little better. It is very
plain to be seen from the above state
ment that the corn situation to-day
is substantially this: Poor seed, un
usually cold, wet and backward
weather has proved very detrimental
to the first planting, and that the
great bulk of the coin crop will not
be in the ground before the first of
June. Hence, we cannot speak defi
nitely as to how good or how poor
the stand of corn for 1883 will be
much, if any, before the 10th of June
May 10th we said: "The moment
we go from one extreme of weather
to another, that moment the crop
will fall below its present standard.''
Such is the case to-day, but more
particularly in Southern Illinois. Dur
ing the past few days we have re
ceived the most discouraging reports
of the condition of wheat o f the sea
son. Chess is developing very rap
idly in fields which were supposed
to hare the best stand, and thous
ands of acres of wheat are being
plowed up and put into corn. Here
again we witness the effects of the
damage to wheat by the Hessian fly
Similar reports have also been re
ceived, but not to so great an extent,
from Missouri and Kausas. Ohio
and Indiana show no general im
provement in condition of their
wheat crop, and unusually cold
weather has kept the wheat very
backward in Michigan.
In Tennessee nnd Kentucky wheat
js in full he3d. The crop at present
gives no promise of anything like tho
yield of 1882. Some of the early
wheat will bo harvested soon after
the first of June. All, or nearly all,
of the whet iu tho more Southern
portion of the wheat belt will be
harvested by the middle of June.
SPUING WHEAT AND OATS.
There havo no conditions so far
developed which militate against
these crops giving us an average, if
not a very full return. The acreage
of oats everywhere has been in
creased. The crop has now made a
fine stand, covers the ground well
and is growing hnely. lhe spring
wheat is a little backward, but has
made a good stand, and at present
has a very encouraging prospect be
June is nearly here and the plant
ing season is not yet finished.

Mary Meats was born on the 8th
day of May 1841 in Tillmgton Parish,
Herefordshire England. In 1847,
her parents, with their family con
sisting of Mary, her four sisters and
two brothers settled at Mt. Sterling,
Brown Co. III. At an early age she
united unto the M. E. Church of
Clayton, 111., and exemplified her
faith by a consistent christian life.
In 1806 her brother John Rickard
visited his sisters in III., and the
same rear Mary Meats and her sis
ter, now Mrs. Nichols accompanied
their brother John fiom 111., to his
home four miles south of Corvallis
From that time until June 10th 1S83
Mary Meats has been tho" center of
her brother's home and has born the
responsibilities of her position with
such ability and energy as to merit
the admiration and respect of all.
She has been a mother to her broth

A noble woman has passed to the
other shore. She was a true and
constant friend ever ready and will ¬

neighbor honored and loved by ail.
Her kindly words of encouragement
thrilled every heart. She died as
she lived a consistent christian.
Her remains were conveyed from
her brother's residence in Corvallis
followed by mourning friends to the
Masonic cemetery, rhere all that
was mortal of Mary Meats was con
signed to its krindred dust.

THE GOSPEL. AITD TEMPERANCE WORK.
(Written for the Corvallis Oinnt.)
It is an encouraging feature in th"
temperance work that it was decidi I
by the Temperance Alliance of Ben
ton county at its first session to boltt
a Gospel Temperance meeting. Th
lime fixed tor this meeting is not
inappropriate. It is proper whil t
we cherish the anniversary of om
independence and liberty as a nation,
that we aso recognize the fact that
the hori7on of our liberties is dark
ened by a cloud of bondage, more
subtle, more tyranical, more deadty
in its effects, more crushing and pirn -iug
to the hearts of our sons amt
daughters than ever overshadowed
us from the mother country.
Most certainly should tho temper
ance work engage the attention and
active, earnest effort of every chris
tian. The mission of Christianity
does not merely stop in being good;
but like its founder it is to "go abom,
doing good." Christianity is not
selfish; merely saving the individual
but it also reaches out its hand In
save a fallen brother. It is not to
setlie down in case and wrap it
robes of sell righteousness around
itself. Such a Christianity whether
of ancient or modern type, whether
vaunting itself in rich robes of nu
merical splendor, or high sounding
individuality; such a Christianity is
not Christianity; but it is a btot
traceable to the satanic breath whjoh
is withering the fairest flowers of
earth. It is emphatically tho work
of the Gospel to impart freedom
and to break the shackles of sin
which bind men to the shades of
misery and sorrow.
This is the work of every christian.
To them is committed the trust of
carrying these blessed waters of life
to the thir.ity and d3'ing around
them. That professor of religion
who is merely a silent witness of
that great army of 75,000 drunkards
going down before his very eyes t
a drunkards hell, from every county
and hamlet of our nation, knows not,
or wilfully rebels against, the call of
his master. Christian workers in the
cause of my master "lift up your
eyes." lie who closes his eyes against
a stern reality, is guilty before God
of the blood of souls. No longer
sleep at duties post, bnt "lift up your
eyes and behold the fields white un
to the Harvest."
A consecrated life means some
thing more than spiritual enjoyment.
He who places his light under tho
bushel of his own selfishner-s in open
disregard of his Master's word will
find at last, that not every one that
snith Lord, Lord; shall enter into tho
Kingdom of Heaven, but "he that
docth the will of my Father which
is in Heaven" is the niirevckable law
that will admit him to Heaven with
its glories. It is proper to pray for
the salvation of our som and broth
ers, but when we obey the word
which comraauds us to "do with our
might what- our hauds find to do,"
then and then only will our prayers
be answered. The world is tired
and sick of sham work. It is time
Christianity be felt in its saving in
fluence. God deliver us from a cold,
lifeless church-ism barren of saving
power, whose "light is obsenrity,"
with "a name to live when it in
dead. J. C.
